TY tHE QUIET GIRAFFE
At first, everyone noticed Ty the giraffe. He’s hard to miss. But Ty is quiet. He doesn’t like to interrupt, and he never shouts out. He likes to think before answering. He pays attention to details and notices things that others don’t. And being quiet makes him a great listener. But the others think Ty is too quiet. They think he never has anything to say. Can he even speak at all? Pretty soon, everyone stops noticing him. That is until Ty shows them that everyone has something important to say.
Inspired by giraffes who are naturally quiet and virtually non-vocal, this story teaches young kids that being quiet is more than okay—it can be a benefit.
Includes fun facts and information about giraffes!
